DFI - Digital Finance Lab Landing Image

Modern finance is undergoing a digital transformation. Technologies such as blockchain provide a new and fundamental paradigm that marries traditional economic concepts with modern computation. In the world of decentralized finance, core functions of financial markets such as trading and lending are being reimagined, with novel mechanisms such as automated market makers and collateralized lending pools.

The Briger Family Digital Finance Lab seeks to bring together academics and practitioners to explore this space, and to understand challenges and opportunities such as the fundamental economics of blockchains, decentralized market microstructure, and mechanisms for decentralized organization and governance.
